I received a free Nature’s Sleep mattress for review. Nature’s Sleep is a company you need to take into consideration when choosing a mattress. They also don’t subscribe to the one size fit’s all approach. The understand that there are many different types of sleepers and each of their mattresses is made with that in mind.
I had a chance to review the Emerald Gel Mattress which is the latest product from Nature’s Sleep. It was designed with stomach sleepers in mind, which I am. I think stomach sleepers can be the hardest to accommodate since it is a position that can be hard on the back and is not recommended by most sleep experts.
Nature’s Sleep Mattresses come packed in a box. It weighed about 60 lbs. The box is also not as pretty as some but who cares, I’m not sleeping on the box and I would rather the money go into the mattress than design of a box.
I can say without a doubt that this is the best mattress I have ever slept on as a stomach sleeper. It beats out all the other mattresses I have reviewed thus far, including Savvy Rest which is a $3,000 organic latex mattress.
The first night I slept on it, I was shocked at how well I slept. No tossing or changing positions and best of all I was able to sleep on my stomach with no pain! The bed sleeps cool for a memory foam mattress. I always keep my room cool at night so not sure how it will perform in the summer when the AC can’t keep up but so far it has been great.
Unlike some of the other mattresses I have reviewed, this is a true memory foam mattress. You sink into the mattress and it conforms very well to your body. It doesn’t have much bounce at all which can be good or bad depending on your preference. I thought that I would miss some of the bounciness I have come to appreciate with my Savvy Rest bed but that all faded when I was able to get comfortable quickly, and stay comfortable all night.
According to their website, this bed works for all types of sleepers, back and side sleepers alike but especially for stomach sleepers. I used a very thin memory foam pillow to sleep on this bed which turned out to be a good choice.
The cover looks and feels great. It has a nice texture to it and is very smooth and cool to the touch. It has a zipper all the way around if you want to remove it just like all the other mattresses I have reviewed. This cover however is much thicker and of better quality. There’s actual a 1″ layer of vitex memory foam contained inside of it for another layer of softness.
Under the Hood
The Emeral Gel mattress contains a top layer of gel memory foam followed by another layer of memory foam then a more sturdy foam base. In all the mattress measures about 12 inches.
The Nature’s Sleep Emerald Gel is a very soft mattress. Softer than any mattress I have tried. A trade off is that you will sink into the mattress and lose some bounce. However an advantage to this is that there’s also less motion transfer.
In the video above you will notice that the bed doesn’t have any bounce. This can be good or bad depending on how much you like to bounce around! I appreciate how you just sink right into the bed and there’s little motion transfer.
Nature’s sleep offers a 20 year limited warranty on their mattresses. That’s a solid length of time but please make sure to read the fine print. It should also be noted that Nature’s sleep does not have a trial period according to their FAQ. So it is a little bit more of a risk compared to the other mattresses reviewed.
If you are a stomach sleeper, you really can’t go wrong with this mattress. I am able to fall asleep quickly and most importantly, stay asleep. I don’t wake up sore or numb. Instead I get up on time ready to start my day.
The queen sized Emerald Gel mattress has a list price of $2,800. However you can get 60% off all the memory foam mattresses they offer with the coupon code, SLEEPBEN60. Click Here to shop.
